Struggling Gleyber Torres gets big hit in return to Yankees’ lineup

Published

on

SEATTLE — Gleyber Torres returned to the Yankees lineup after missing Tuesday’s game with hamstring discomfort and the struggling shortstop came through with a two-run single in the first inning of the Yankees’ 5-4 win over the Mariners at T-Mobile Park on Wednesday night.

Before the game, Aaron Boone said he would monitor Torres after he first started dealing with the cramping during Sunday’s doubleheader against the Mets in The Bronx.

“We do feel it’s something minor,’’ Boone said.

Torres entered Wednesday without an extra-base hit since June 13 — a span of 16 games. He had gone 6-for-54 with 10 walks, 18 strikeouts and an OPS of just .361.

After his first-inning hit, Torres flied to the track in center in the second and grounded out in the fifth.

With the Yankees ahead by a run and Giancarlo Stanton on second in the seventh, Torres again sent one to the track in center, where Taylor Trammell caught up to it.

“He swung the bat really well,’’ Boone said.


Tim Locastro doubled in consecutive innings and has three runs, a walk and an RBI in his last two games as he continues to provide a spark since arriving in a trade from Arizona last week.

“That’s an athlete,’’ Aaron Judge said of Locastro, who started in left field Wednesday, but also provides an option in center, where the Yankees have lacked depth since losing Aaron Hicks to season-ending wrist surgery.


Zack Britton threw a bullpen session Tuesday and came through it well, Boone said. The next step is for the left-handed reliever to throw live batting practice against hitters before being activated. Britton was placed on the 10-day IL on June 26 with a left hamstring strain.


The Yankees seemingly will be without reliever Darren O’Day for a while. He suffered what Boone termed a “significant” hamstring injury during his pregame warmups on Tuesday.


Clint Frazier (vertigo) remains at home in New York and continues to go through a battery of tests. So far, the results have been “encouraging,” according to Boone.

Frazier was placed on the IL on Friday after complaining of dizziness. Frazier had dealt with concussion issues in past seasons.

“Trying to leave no stone unturned,” Boone said. “We continue to get encouraging news back, as far as a lot of the serious things [that could be the problem]. He’s gone through pretty extensive testing, and we’re getting good news on that.”


With Jordan Montgomery set to start Thursday’s series finale, the Yankees still are unsure of who will start Friday against the Astros in Houston.

Boone listed Nestor Cortes Jr. and Michael King as options, depending on who’s used before the series.


After Luke Voit’s first career five-hit game on Tuesday, the first baseman singled in his first two at-bats Wednesday.

Sidelined by a torn meniscus in his left knee that led to surgery in spring training and a right oblique strain that also landed him on the IL, Voit has hardly looked like the player who led the majors in home runs last season.

Voit has also hit the ball to the opposite field less this year than at any other point in his career and both Boone and Voit noted for him to be successful, he can’t get pull-happy.

The lack of home runs has been especially noticeable. His home run/fly ball rate has gone from 34.9 percent a year to 13 percent this season, according to Fangraphs. And Voit has made less hard contact than at any point of his career.

Actress Anne Heche Suffers Severe Burns After Crashing Car Into Los Angeles Home

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also put NICEBUNS, FATFANNY, GOTAPOOP and BENDOVER in the rear-view mirror.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.

He said guidelines on what plate combinations are restricted can be found on the DMV website: https://dmv.ny.gov/learn-about-personalized-plates. Approximately 50,000 personalized and custom plates are sold per year, O’Brien said.
